An independent whisky specialist, with many collectors’ items including bottlings from closed and silent distilleries as well as their own single casks.
Founded in 1984 then overhauled and re-launched in 2003, Robbie’s Drams is one of Ayr’s leading whisky shops. It’s an independently run family business stocking hundreds of single malts, blends, grain whiskies and bourbons from all over the world (but mostly Scotland). They do monthly special offers, collectors’ items, limited edition bottlings, closed and silent distillery bottlings, their own range of single-cask bottlings and everything in between. A good sample of Robbie’s very discerning inventory is always available to browse in their well-maintained web shop. In-depth knowledge about the humble dram is a given from owner Robin Russell and his staff, who also founded and continues to organise Ayr’s annual Whisky An’ A’ That festival.
